The three best FTP clients for Windows 10

File transfer by FTP

The world of the Internet has arrived, whether we like it or not, and that means that the tools that only a few used years ago are now almost essential tools for Windows 10. One of those tools is called an ftp client. An Ftp client will help us download and upload all kinds of material to the web space.

Windows 10 offers ftp access natively but your client is so basic that many users don't have everything we need. That is why it is good to choose install an ftp client on our Windows 10. Next we will talk about three FTP clients that we can install in Windows 10 and that are quite useful.

The client of Ftp rey is called Filezilla. It is a free, opensource ftp client, which we can install without any problem. This Customer allows us to create custom connectionsIn other words, we can connect to different ftp spaces without having to open the program several times. The Filezilla screen is divided into three parts: the first part informs us of the status of the connection; the second part shows us the files we have and the third part shows us the status of our operations, if they have been successful or if they have been failed. Filezilla we can get it from its official website .


Fireftp is not a typical ftp client but it is a Firefox extension that we can install in the web browser. For that we need to use Firefox as a web browser. FireFTP is an extension that we install for free in the web browser. When we open FireFTP, a new tab opens divided into two windows: in one we have the files from the web space and in another the files from our computer. FireFTP is an extension that we find in the official Mozilla extensions and add-ons repository.

CuteFTP Pro

This FTP client was famous years ago and was one of the most used before Filezilla appeared. CuteFTP Pro is the premium option of this FTP client, we can also try the freemium version but it does not have the positive functions of this FTP client. CuteFTP Pro contains the same as the previous clients, but unlike them, CuteFTP has tools that will make the job easier, such as backup copies, an html editor or a podcast editor. Useful tools but that can also be replaced by other more complex applications. In any case, you can get CuteFTP Pro at CuteFTP official website.


At this point, surely many of you will wonder which client is the best. I personally think that all three are a good alternative, although I personally use Filezilla, since it is free, cross-platform and its configuration is simple, very simple. But, since the three options can be tried for free, it is best that you try Do not you think?

    This is a good list, but I would add a client like WebDrive because in my experience none of these clients are very secure. Some may be free, but I am careful with free software due to the potential for malware.
    WebDrive is also available in Spanish.

    Windows always brings an ftp client, but it is used in the console.
